Hello, My Dear Readers,
As usual, here is my recommendation if you want to watch, at the comfort of your home, a nice movie:
If, of course, you haven´t seen it yet, my recommendation now for the weekend is on DVD, a thriller starred by the British, more exactly, Irish actor, Liam Neeson, and also by Diana Kruger,
an ex top model from Germany, who saves his life, and also demonstrates, besides her attributes of beauty, being a great supporting actress.
You can watch the trailer here:
It´s the story of Dr. Martin Harris, a Botanist, who travels with his supposedly wife – January Jones
– to Berlim,
Germany and becomes a victim of identity theft. How? Welll, when they get there, he realizes he had left his briefcase at the aiport and rushes back to get it by himself by picking up a taxicab driven by Diane Kruger´s character, but, in the middle of the way, he has a nearly fatal accident which causes a temporary memory loss and a state of confusion, leading us, viewers, to question whether he is hallucinating or actually being a victim of a setup. It´s a very interesting and intriguing thriller.
So, the plot unfolds about his trying to prove who he is while everyone else tells him otherwise. The idea of the movie, according to the director and producer, is to grab you and take you on a ride, as it combines elements seen before in movies such as Borne Identity and The Fugitive.
What makes the movie interesting. though, is that, most of the emotions felt while watching it must come from your identification with the character´s feelings, which demands a lot from the actor to convey that through his facial expressions and performance – Liam Neeson does it superbly well – great actor.
It´s a psychological thriller that can really speak to us and it´s definitely an edge-of-your-seat movier that will certainly get you glued to your TV screen from beginning to end – guaranteed.
At least, in my opinion, it is a great movie.
